The Planning Commission conducts its business through public hearings and work sessions staffed by the Department of Transportation and Development.  Its decisions and recommendations are made on the basis of requirements set forth in state law, the County Comprehensive Plan and County ordinances.

The Commission is scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m., the second and fourth Monday of every month, in the Development Services Building Auditorium, 150 Beavercreek Rd., Oregon City.  However, regular meetings may be cancelled or special meetings may be added depending on pending business.  All meetings, except for those related to personnel matters, are open to the public.  Public hearings are audio-recorded and the recordings are retained for one year.

Design Review Committee

The Design Review process ensures that new and significantly remodeled commercial and multifamily developments meet the needs of the entire community. Design Review considers issues that affect safety, function, overall appearance and livability. These issues include zoning, existing site conditions, off-site impacts, setbacks, access, parking, grading, drainage, signs, landscaping and architectural design. Adequate circulation for pedestrians, bicycles, cars and service vehicles also must be considered.

County staff and the Design Review Committee conduct the Design Review process. The Design Review Committee is composed of citizen volunteers, several of whom are experts in architecture, landscape design and planning.

Section 1102 of the ZDO describes Design Review in detail.
